Massachusetts Supreme Court to hear Merrimack College v. KPMG LLP
The Massachusetts Supreme Court will hear the case of Merrimack College v. KPMG LLP at 9 a.m. Tuesday, May 8.
Merrimack College requests the court to vacate the order of the Suffolk Superior Court granting summary judgment and to remand the case for trial.
"The plaintiff further requests that order of the Superior Court granting the defendant's motion to amend its answer be vacated, and that an order denying the motion to amend enter from this court," the college's brief states.
The original case revolved around KPMG allegedly negligently failing "to investigate irregularities in the college's financial aid office, and therefore failed to discover that the financial aid director, Christine Mordach, had issued millions of dollars of student loans without the knowledge of either Merrimack or the student borrowers," the brief states.
